Marble statues and opulent light fixtures surround the pedicure chairs at Hollywood Nail & Spa, which could make clients feel as though they are getting their piggies pampered in the foyer of a Tuscan villa. The technicians here groom cuticles, artfully shape nails, and remove traces of cheese puff dust from fingers before applying coats of colorful polish or clear lacquers. Manicures leave hands silky smooth, while pedicures soften rough patches and calluses.
Sungum Salon's skincare professionals rejuvenate epidermises with treatments culled from time-honored methods and resources such as ancient Indian therapeutic techniques and Ayurvedic herbs. Their face-care services range from microdermabrasion and facial masks to steams and glycolic peels, whose ingredients—naturally extracted sugar cane, sugar beets, and raw grapes—exfoliate skin while diminishing wrinkles and acne scars. For the rest of the body, an exotic fruit or oatmeal-honey scrub exfoliates skin more effectively than lining your trousers with coarse-grain sandpaper. Sungum Salon's full-body treatments also include a seaweed-and-French-clay wrap, which infuses skin with nutrients, and henna sessions that adorn hands, feet, or backs with temporary ornate designs.
Although the stylists at Crisp Salon are seasoned professionals, each one is also a student. That's because they receive ongoing training with Aveda salon educators to keep their hair, nail, and makeup services right on the cusp of fashion. Stylists apply their up-to-date knowledge to deliver chip-free Shellac manicures, frizz-defying Brazilian blowouts, and makeovers with Aveda cosmetics. The environmentally friendly makeup line crafts bold colors and natural shades with non-petroleum minerals, natural botanicals, and a rainbow's leftover bathwater.
At The Beauty Clinic MedSpa, medically supervised aestheticians help clients attain their ideal appearance through a range of face and body services. Staff members undergo in-depth training to help visitors select the high-end products from derma e, DermOrganic, and Fake Bake to best suit their complexions. A slate of facials resurface skin with the help of microdermabrasions and natural enzymes, and eyelash extensions, laser hair removal, and permanent makeup leave a longer-lasting elegance than the beauty mark chiseled into Mount Rushmore.
Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.
21st Century Dental expanded its aesthetic umbrella in 2009 to include 21st Century Med Spa, spreading the office?s goal of enhancing smiles to include other parts of the face and body. Medical director Brandon Charles oversees the clinic and aesthetic nurse Cheryl Gwartney masters specialty services that serve her personal passion for making patients feel confident in their own skin. Laser facial services plump and tighten facial skin to erase irregularities such as age spots, acne, and sun spots. Cheryl also wields syringes full of Radiesse, Dysport, and Restylane formulas that smooth facial wrinkles in order for adults to be able to sneak into G-rated movies.
